The European forces, I believe, have only 11 heavy military transport planes; fewer than Australia. The U.S. forces have 250. The lack of heavy transport planes makes it essentially impossible for European nations to do anything in Darfur, for example.
Is that to their detriment or benefit?

It limits the options of the Europeans. It is certainly to the detriment of blacks in Darfur or Muslims in the former Yugoslavia.
